About Brain Tumours

Information on the brain, brain tumours, their diagnosis and treatment, possible side effects as well as a note on sources of help and support.

The brain is a complicated and fascinating part of human anatomy, which many of us only understand at a very basic level.

A brain tumour is composed of abnormal growths of tissue (cells) found inside the brain itself.

The symptoms of a brain tumour will depend partly on its size and type, but they are predominantly determined by its location.

The three main treatments are surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.

Further information, helplines, support groups and useful links.
